Annual memorial game honouring our veterans

Posted on: November 14, 2019

The second game of the weekend, the annual memorial game honouring our veterans, saw the Bears opposing the Rockland Nationals Sunday afternoon. Mr. Ormand VanDusen dropped the ceremonial puck. 

Almost a continuation of Friday, anything that could go wrong, went wrong for the Bears, ending in a 0:6 loss. The unnecessary penalties, a jumble of almost anything right up to game misconduct and ejection were just one of the many problems plaguing the team. The defense showed more holes than Swiss cheese, and the forwards appeared to be stuck in reverse with a sparse total of merely 16 shots on net versus 42 by the Nationals. 

Rockland started the beating at 8:57 in the first period with a score by Cameron Last. Gunnar Smith came next with a goal at 15:20, followed with a score by Vincent Labelle at 17:34 and a fourth score at 17:58 by Alex Frechette.

The only goal of the second period was shot by William Collins at 3:05 during power play.

The third period also saw only one score, a power play goal by Matthew Vermaeten at 18:03.

Rockland’s goalie Cyrus Martin received First Star of the game, Justin Dauphinais (ROC) Second Star, and Bruce Coltart Third Star.

The next game happens Friday night at the usual time and spot 7:30pm at the Den with the Bears facing the Kemptville 73’s. The team hopefully finds a way out of their slumber by then.
